Strange Tail lights on '07 25FB

Has anybody seen these type of tail lights on late model SafarIs? This is supposedly a 2007 Safari SE 25FB but the taillights do not appear to be the more rectangular LED type lights.

They look round and more "vintage" to me. Did AS every use something like this?

Thanks, SailAS

Yes Airstream has used them for several years. If get the LS package on the trailer you get the better lights. The trailer in your picture looks just like mine. It does not have the LS package. Hope this helps.

Yep. Thanks

I did some more searching on the Forum and did find the thread that talked about the includions in the SE and LS package.

Have you "missed" any of the LS upgardes? I'm looking at this trailer now for purchase. It does have an electric tounge hitch ( I think) and a convection oven/Microwave (I think) but not upgraded Audio video package. In fact it doe snot have a TV at all.

Any thoughts on how much difference is purchase proce should be attributed to NOT having the LS? I don't see anything in list that I would really miss but you have a much better view of it than I.

Thanks

I have not missed any of the LS upgrades. The wiring for the TV is in the wall by the fridge. I had to remove the plate where the cable comes in on the wall and stuck a wire in the wall and fished out the wires for the TV.
I mounted a 19in TV on the wall by the fridge and run the sound for the TV into the radio and now have surround sound when the TV is on.

Exactly Right

Makes sense and I talked to the wife about it. She said she did not see any "features" that she would miss (but then she would not be doing the cranking on the front jack!!!!

Really appreciate the insight as I have to drive 750 miles to look at this one.

Smooth sailing. SailAS.

At some point they began including the LS features in all SE Airstreams. This was '08s for sure -- don't know but might have even been introduced for part of the '07 model year. Changes didn't always occur right at the model year transition (usually toward the end of April). And they included mandatory skylights somewhere else along the way. I've got the LS but it's not critical. Kinda glad I don't have the skylight when camping in the sun.

Smile More on the Tail lights

Well I actually looked at the AS Safari SE in question and bought it. It was built in August of 06 so was at a model year "change" I guess. Althoough it is "only" an SE unit, it has all the options included in the LS package EXCEPT the tail lights. It also has the 75th Aniversary badge as well. Will post some pics when I get it back to Texas.

Very, Vey Happy "Camper" now. SailAS
